Alice’s Easy Chocolate Cake

My mother-in-law gave me this recipe.  Alice worked full time and used easy recipes to cook for her family.  She made this for her children.

1 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
¼ cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon vinegar
½ cup cooking oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup cold water

Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, soda and salt together.  Add vinegar, oil, and vanilla and mix.  Pour in cold water over mixture and mix well.

Add this mixture to an unprepared 8” x 8” pan.  

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 25 to 30 minutes until just done.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar (or you can use your favorite chocolate icing).
